Beautiful Scotland, Beautiful Aberdeen

Congratulations to all colleagues involved in bringing home to Aberdeen so many prizes from this week’s Beautiful Scotland Awards event held in Perth.

The Council itself won the Royal Caledonian Horticultural Society Trophy for Seaton Park.  As it happens, we all have the opportunity to admire the work there of Steven Shaw and his team this weekend as the Friends of Seaton Park hold their first Seaton ParkFest – more information at

There were also awards for Aberdeen Inspired (BID category overall winner), Growing Smarter, the Granite City (city category overall winner) and Dyce in Bloom (urban community category overall winner). 

Prizes were also won by Powis Residents Group, Cove in Bloom and Culter in Bloom.
